I am an internal medicine physician with the Colorado Permanente Medical Group (CPMG). As a partner provider, I care for Kaiser Permanente patients across Colorado, instead of at a single medical office.
I grew up in Colorado and attended medical school and residency at the University of Colorado. I worked in private practice for 11 years before joining CPMG in 2006. I was drawn to CPMG because of the entire collaborative system that exists to help providers give their best for patient care. I can honestly say that I am a better physician because I’m a Permanente physician. In addition to seeing patients, I meet with Kaiser Permanente’s national and local customers, allowing me to bring in all of my professional experience and my skills as a physician to connect the customer’s concerns with our solutions.
I look forward to seeing my patients and enjoy learning about them. I respect my patients as partners in maintaining their health. Electronic medical records help me to see the big picture of a patient’s health, so I can make good use of our time together and answer my patient’s questions. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate my patients’ care.
I love to read. My children, my husband and my dog are my everything. Most weekends we’ll be walking or hiking together in Colorado’s beautiful mountains.
